Many girls have grown up idolizing Disney princesses, so it is only natural that a school specializing in mermaid swimming lessons would be introduced. Monofin swimming isn't something new, but L'académie Aquasirène, the first mermaid school in Canada, takes it to a more fantastical level by modelling its equipment after a mermaid's tail.

Romantic and enchanting, watching a clip of mermaid swimming lessons is utterly mesmerizing. The swimmers are graceful and full of vibrant colors, which will bring Ariel and her sisters to the minds of those who have watched 'The Little Mermaid' before. Based in Montreal, the mermaid swimming school claims the lessons are "one of the best ab workouts around."

24-year-old professional mermaid and founder of AquaMermaid Academy, Marielle Chartier Hénault, says, "Right now, there are two main customers. Little girls who just want to live the dream and older women, 18 to 25, who are looking for a workout."
